Culvert and Pipe Repair to Begin on State Highway 93

November 9, 2011 - UPCOMING CONSTRUCTION PROJECT - Northeastern Colorado/CDOT Region 4 - Project will reduce highway to one lane in each direction starting Monday, November 14.

BOULDER COUNTY — Starting next week, crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) will begin preparations for a two-part culvert replacement and repair project on State Highway (SH) 93 between mile marker (MM) 14 near SH 170 and MM 16 near the Viele Channel.

On Monday, November 14, SH 93 will be reduced to one lane in each direction to allow room for work to be completed near MM 14. There will be a detour in place via SH 170 and Marshall Road for some turns to and from Marshall Road. Motorists will not be permitted to turn south from Marshall Road onto SH 93 but northbound turns will be allowed. In the section of the project farther north near the Viele Channel at MM 15, crews will be working away from roadways and no closures are scheduled in the area at this time.

Motorists traveling between Golden and Boulder are urged to plan for delays contingent on traffic volumes. At no time will traffic be stopped, but traffic flow could become sluggish during peak travel times. Project work hours will be from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, weather permitting. Speeds will be reduced to 40 MPH through the work zone and traffic fines will be doubled. The project is scheduled for completion by February 2012 and is contracted through KECI Colorado Inc.
